Haydn - Creation

One of the most often "stolen" pieces in the trombone quartet repertoire is "Achieved if the Glorious Work" from the famed Haydn oratorio The Creation.  The arrangement was first made famous on the album Four of a Kind (1995), which featured Joseph Alessi, Mark Lawrence, Scott Hartman, and Blair Bollinger.  Since then, it has become a staple of the trombone quartet repertoire and an excellent first piece for young quartets. 

Below is the recording from the Four of a Kind album, and a live performance by the Coppenhagan Trombone Quartet.
